Hi, I’m Dr. Julie, or just Julie to you, and I coach adults to a better future by helping to turn big, overwhelming relationship problems into a series of small, doable changes. I’ve dedicated my professional life to this because it’s the one thing all my clients talk about, regardless of their reason for working with me initially. It’s also something I’m intimately familiar with, but more about that later. I'm a Portland psychologist and wrote Loved: Relationship Rules for Women Who Thought They Knew the Rules after two decades working with women on their relationships and going through a few struggles of my own. My work and writing focuses on getting the connection with others you want and deserve, whether it is with an intimate partner, friend, or family member. I have a PhD in clinical psychology from Ohio State University and has helped hundreds of people improve their relationships and their lives.
